I selected this bike, because i wanted bike for a long trips, without spring fork, classic handlebar, and a lot of hols for bags or etc. And this one have it. Frame have great geometry for long time riding, i feel good and without any pain in my back side. Seat pot is great, he gently spring, and with good seat it´s perfect. This seat is no definitely soft and great for a long time seating, but good enough. Shimano shifting is good, just by me, i no need this 3 chainrings on the rear, but it´s indipendent. Bowdens is little bit saved, and this plastic cover is like fender, and it´s good. Just point under central hub on the frame - can be more save. Fixed fork is good, but already to hard. This aluminium material arn´t like CrMo, and geometry is very direct. Brakes - fluid brakes is very strong, and stop me realy fast. Just i hope, fluid pipes never make me wory, or any problem. Head assembly is good enough. Tyres - fast, big size for comfort and little bit riding in the forest, but no to much. This tyres are for race, and it´s mean, the didn´t be for a long time using, to much durable, but more for good grip on the road. Grips and the handle bars is realy simple, i have already changed it. Bell - it´s joke from GIANT..:) Can´t berealy used - big diameter and he bell only, if you smash him realy hard, like with hammer. It´s waste. Rims is strong and good. And finaly, this bike look realy nice, color combination is perfect. This bike is perfect for comuting, easy riding and training as well, definitely for a long trips with bags. No for race, or like MTB. I´m happy with him, and realy recomend him, exactly now, in this price.
